The Connecticut Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is seeking ways to expand the number and quality of research presentations related to entrepreneurship and innovation at the School of Business, as well as supporting faculty and students as they attend conferences associated with entrepreneurship.
To accomplish this objective, CCEI is now offering two types of grants to support this:
1.) A $1,000 honorarium will be granted to departments and centers seeking to host an outside speaker for a research presentation related to entrepreneurship and innovation. The honorarium will be given per speaker and is designed to cover travel, hotel, and other expenses related to the visit.
2.) Funding will be provided to faculty or Ph.D. students seeking to attend a conference or workshop, collect data, or work with colleagues on a project related to entrepreneurship or innovation. Travel award amounts range and will be based on funding available, the costs associated with the trip and the nature of the conference.
We accept applications on a rolling basis, however we highly encourage you to apply at least one month prior to the date of the conference or date of the guest speaker.
